My Perfect Day in Paris

My perfect day in Paris doesn’t involve the Eiffel Tower. It doesn’t involve croissants. And it definitely doesn’t involve gruyère cheese.

What does it involve? Wandering. Taking pictures. Stopping for steak frites. Enjoying the rare and beautiful blue skies. People-watching. And discovering beautiful little details all over the city.

  1. I unfortunately did not have the best experience my first trip to Paris (lots of cranky tourist area workers, knife pulled on me). I’m going back in a couple months and your version looks like more of what I’m looking for. I’m going to spend as little time as possible in the tourist areas and just try to enjoy walking the streets being a Parisian for a short time. I always enjoy your blog. I think it’s what most serious travelers want to see of Paris.

  2. You know – I have to say the steak frites because I could eat that right now! I also love the roses – spring optimism! I’d love to spend another day in Paris, just wandering about.

  3. How to choose? They are all great. The roses do make me happy though. Wish
    I were there to wander the streets with you!
    Love,

  4. I like the one on the top row, right the best. I like the bicycles in it. I’ve never been to Paris, so I’ve really enjoyed reading about it on your site!

  5. I so agree with you! I studied French in Paris two summers a couple of years ago and just wandering around Paris was my favorite thing to do as well. My favorite picture is the one of the Place des Vosges – the Marais is probably one of my favorite quartiers in Paris! :)

  6. I think I loved the pictures with the buildings and the breads the most! Paris looks so wonderfully beautiful! The skies are so clear!

  7. It does sound like a perfect day, I love Paris & France in general! My husband & I got engaged in France 3 years ago, so is a special place for us. I like the queue outside the falafel store photo….makes me want to be in it!

  8. My Partner And I just want to inform you you in which I’m really inexperienced to blog posting and pretty much enjoyed your write-up. Most likely I am going to save your web post . You really have fabulous article topic. Appreciate it for expressing with us your blog webpage.

  9. It’s actually almost close to impossible to come across well-qualified americans on this issue, and yet you appear like you fully understand whatever you’re writing on! Many Thanks

  10. I agree with you! It is fun to wander in any city and take pictures and watch people and look down little side streets. Love the pictures.
